When “first” word get attached to anything in our life…its just become very precious to us and its impossible to forget it ever.You know what…I think most of us keep struggling in our life just to be “first”..first in class, school, college, office, and first in some one’s life too..;P.This is a very simple word but it has immense power that leads us human to feel so many emotions like …courage, motivation, proud, jealousy, rivalry, satisfaction, confident, humiliation and so on..
Think about the happiness, satisfaction and the confidence you felt the day you got your “first” salary..? after that you may be getting double or triple money than that, and you must be feeling contended, but I think still the joy of getting first salary is uncomaparable….hai na ( I too want to feel that happiness some day )
Its human nature that whenever we do anything for the first time we feel so many things that the memory of that day carved permanently in our brain,and the bitter sweet memories of it keep touching our heart in many ways through out the life, we cant shake it how hard we try.

The day when I gave my first stage performance, I was so busy in looking out for my mom and dad in audience that I forgot why I am standing on the stage..and my teacher from back stage was wispering my name desperately” maahi, start singing…and My whole attention was on my search for my parents, and when only I saw my mom waving hands , I relaxed and started singing…( I was in nursery school that time ).and ofcourse I had been a laughing stock for a long time in my family for that act , my big bro’s still some time keep reminding me of that day and I just shrug and say, what are you both talking about,…
Think about smell of the soil when it rained “first” time in season or the “first” bud bloomed into a flower in your favourite plant, first ray of sunlight, first snow fall of the season…..these all give us so much happiness… after first…. second, third or fourth does”t give so much pleasure, ofcourse we like them also..but ” first is first”…..simple.
